In response to hedleylamarr's comment:
Irrelevant - we are supposed to be talking about the Celtics. The only way we see the lakers again is if both of us make the Finals............and since NEITHER of us will, who cares about the lakers?
Sorry, hedley, but as a fan who has hated the Lakers(Yankees too) all his life despite our dominance over them in head-to-head finals, 2010's 7th game loss still hurts, I get an enjoyment seeing them lose. And I a pleasure knowing we are still one banner ahead of them & our propects for being 2 ahead instead of them tying us are very good.
As per Spearment's Chewing gum ad, Double your pleasure, double your fun, I get the same satisfaction when Cetics win and Lakers lose(same with Sox and Yankees. So, I care about the Lakers and watch their games & become a fan of anyone who plays against them.
No problem, it wasn't personal. What's funny is that when I was younger, I would PRAY for a lakers/Celtics matchup. Bird vs Magic - basketball at its' best.
Sadly, I'm apathetic now in the reg season about the lakers. While it would be funny to see them not make the playoffs (and shut these people up), they will make the playoffs and do better than many here expect against the Spurs or Thunder.
What is even sadder, is that if the Internet existed back in the 80's................I probably would have become apathetic then, too. Instead of praying for the matchup!
